How much yarn did this take?  That is absolutely awesome!  I love it.  I now have a few pixelated projects to get started on right away.

I think it took about 20 skeins of yarn more or less.  Each skein made 17 or 18 granny squares.


ALSO!  I wanted to keep this to myself, but the anticipation is killing me......the Raccoon Mario rug is going to be featured in NINTENDO POWER!!!

One of their freelance writers contacted me in November to do an interview, so now it's just a matter of time before the article shows up in the Community Section of the magazine!  I'm not sure which month it will end up in, since there were a few articles lined up before mine...but I will scan the article and post it here when it does turn up  Grin

You inspired me to make a present for my boyfriend. Instead of a rug, I made a blanket out of fleece squares. Here's the final:

It turned out larger than I expected. To give you a idea of the scale, here he is peaking out from under it:

Yup, he loved it. Thank you for your inspiration!

edit: lame I can't post pictures.

This rug is epic! You have inspired me to try and make an 8-bit mario blanket. Although, I'll admit, I don't think I have the patience to make it as big as your rug!
